The radio voice is the voice of everyday life. Whether the expression is intimate or authoritative the radio voice merges with our private sphere and we react to the speaking voice in certain ways – with degrees of affection or perhaps with disgust. From the very advent of broadcast radio around 1920 it has been characterized by an orality addressing all listeners regardless of their social class. The fact that radio voices have been associated with the voices of everyday life calls for a closer examination.
The Radio Voices seminar focuses on the expressive qualities of radio voices. How do we describe radio voices and how do these mediated voices interfere with us in our daily life? The seminar addresses these central questions from a variety of perspectives ranging from current research in voice aesthetics and reception to practices of voice training and voice editing.
The seminar is free and open to everyone.
